Dilantha Gunawardana


My lips caress your unblemished front
Shrouding your oceans of intelligence
I descend to your lines of
Perfect symmetry
Enchanting in their movements
A pair of waves in their ever-dazzling flow
Rich in emotion
In exuberance…..
Even in melancholy……
And the infinity of possibilities in between
My eyes are locked in an eternal gaze
As my lips slowly move to graze
The contours of your gateways to the world
The doorways to an infinity of love, of empathy, of kindness, of honesty
That very few ever feel
But I do……., I do my love
I am captivated by your superabundance of raw emotion
My lips feel your generosity……I can taste your conscience
I reach down to embrace the zenith of your oasis
I feel you exhale…….
Your oxygen that I live on……every second, every minute, in every lifetime
I respire your beauty within
A breath of life that reaches the follicles, fingers and toes alike
I levitate in the buoyancy of your beauty
I am an angel on earth with invisible wings
Lifted by you
My goddess
My immortal obsession
My lips slowly descend to yours
In those seconds of eternity
I am omniscient ……….of you
Your wealth of selflessness
I am God for a fleeting moment
Take me my love on that endless journey
To nowhere……. only we know
I know your visage completely…….
Every line, every angle, every spot of perfection
But I don't know who you are……Alas I'm a blind man searching for eternity
Who are you my love?
